Carly Rae Jepsen really likes South Africa – she’s coming here in October.


Hilltop Live Africa and Universal Music South Africa, in partnership with 94.7 and MTV have announced two dates for Carly Rae Jepsen to perform in South Africa.

The Grammy Award-nominated multi-platinum-selling Canadian recording artist will be in Cape Town and Pretoria in October as part of her E.MO.TION album release here.

The “Call Me Maybe” and “I Really Like You” singer will perform at Grand Arena, GrandWest, Cape Town on 21 October 2015 and the Monument Amphitheatre, Pretoria on 24 October 2015.

It’s unclear why Pretoria was picked over Joburg. Do people just really, really, really like her beyond the Boerewors curtain?

Love her or hate her, her tunes are the annoying kind that get stuck in your head on a loop for hours. She did a very cool video for “I Really Like You” that features Tom Hanks. Check it out below.
